FIDELITY NATIONAL INFORMATION SERVICES, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)


Unless stated otherwise or the context otherwise requires, all references to “FIS,” “we,” the “Company” or the “registrant” are to Fidelity National Information Services, Inc., a Georgia corporation, and its subsidiaries.

(1) Basis of Presentation

The unaudited financial information included in this report includes the accounts of FIS and its subsidiaries prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. All adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. This report should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. The preparation of these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Certain reclassifications have been made in the 2014 Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) to conform to the classifications used in 2015.

In March 2015, FIS finalized a reorganization and began streamlining its global operations in response to market conditions and to more efficiently meet the demand of specific client needs. As a result of these changes, information that the Company’s chief operating decision maker regularly reviews for purposes of allocating resources and assessing performance changed. Therefore, beginning in the first quarter of 2015, the Company reports its financial performance based on our new segments: Integrated Financial Solutions (“IFS”), Global Financial Solutions (“GFS”) and Corporate and Other (Note 10). All previous periods have been recast to conform to the new segment presentation.

(2) Related Party Transactions

Brazilian Venture

The Company operates a joint venture ("Brazilian Venture") with Banco Bradesco S.A. ("Banco Bradesco"), in which we own a 51% controlling interest, to provide comprehensive, fully outsourced transaction processing, call center, cardholder support and collection services to multiple card issuing clients in Brazil, including Banco Bradesco. The original accounting for this transaction resulted in the establishment of a contract intangible asset and a liability for amounts payable to the original partner banks upon final migration of their respective card portfolios and achieving targeted volumes (the “Brazilian Venture Notes”). The unamortized contract intangible asset balance as of September 30, 2015 was $88.1 million. During the three months ended June 30, 2015, the board of directors for the Brazilian Venture declared a one-time dividend, resulting in a payment of $23.6 million to Banco Bradesco which reduced the noncontrolling interest balance.

The Company recorded Brazilian Venture revenues of $58.1 million and $74.3 million during the three months and $182.6 million and $212.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, from Banco Bradesco relating to these services. Banco Bradesco Brazilian Venture revenues included $31.6 million and $68.1 million of unfavorable currency impact during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively, resulting from a stronger U.S. Dollar in 2015 as compared to 2014.

(3) Net Earnings per Share
The basic weighted average shares and common stock equivalents for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 are computed using the treasury stock method.

Options to purchase approximately 0.8 million and 0.1 million shares of our common stock for the three months and 0.8 million and 4.1 million shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because they were anti-dilutive.

(4) Discontinued Operations and Other Dispositions

During the second quarter of 2015, we sold certain assets associated with our gaming industry check warranty business, resulting in a pre-tax gain of $139.4 million, which is included in Other income (expense), net. The sale did not meet the standard necessary to be reported as discontinued operations; therefore, the gain and related prior period earnings remain reported within earnings from continuing operations.

Certain other operations are reported as discontinued in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Unaudited) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

China eCas Business Line

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company committed to a plan to sell our business operation that provides eCas core banking software solutions to small financial institutions in China because it did not align with our strategic plans. This line of business had nominal revenues and earnings (losses) before taxes of $(0.2) million and $0.3 million for the three months and $(3.9) million and $(2.7) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. We signed a contract in January 2015 to sell this business and the transaction closed during the second quarter of 2015.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)


During the third quarter of 2010, the Company decided to pursue strategic alternatives for Fidelity National Participacoes Ltda. (“Participacoes”). Participacoes' processing volume was transitioned to other vendors or back to its customers during the second quarter of 2011. There were no revenues for the 2015 and 2014 periods. Participacoes had charges of $2.2 million and $2.2 million for the three months and $4.7 million and $3.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The shut-down activities involved the transfer and termination of approximately 2,600 employees, which was completed in 2011. Former employees generally had up to two years from the date of terminations, extended through April 2013, to file labor claims and a number of them did file labor claims. As of September 30, 2015, there were approximately 580 active claims remaining. Consequently, we have continued exposure on these active claims, which were not transferred with other assets and liabilities in the disposal. Our accrued liability for active labor claims, net of $8.7 million in court ordered deposits, is $10.3 million as of September 30, 2015. Any changes in the estimated liability related to these labor claims will be recorded as discontinued operations.

In 2004, Proservvi Empreendimentos e Servicios, Ltda., the predecessor to Fidelity National Servicos de Tratamento de Documentos e Informatica Ltda. (“Servicos”), a subsidiary of Participacoes, acquired certain assets and employees and leased certain facilities from the Transpev Group (“Transpev”) in Brazil. Transpev’s remaining assets were later acquired by Prosegur, an unrelated third party. When Transpev discontinued its operations after the asset sale to Prosegur, it had unpaid federal taxes and social contributions owing to the Brazilian tax authorities. The Brazilian tax authorities brought a claim against Transpev and beginning in 2012 brought claims against Prosegur and Servicos on the grounds that that Prosegur and Servicos were successors in interest to Transpev. To date, the Brazilian tax authorities filed four claims against Servicos asserting potential tax liabilities of approximately $6.8 million. There are potentially 31 additional claims against Transpev/Prosegur for which Servicos is named as a co-defendant or may be named, but for which Servicos has not yet been served. These additional claims amount to approximately $70.0 million making the total potential exposure for all 35 claims approximately $76.8 million. We do not believe a liability for these 35 total claims is probable or reasonably estimable and, therefore, have not recorded a liability for any of these claims.

The Company entered into capital lease obligations of $0.4 million during the three months ended September 30, 2015 and $2.2 million and $0.9 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The assets are included in property and equipment and computer software and the remaining capital lease obligations are classified as long-term debt on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets (Unaudited) as of September 30, 2015. Periodic payments are included in repayment of borrowings on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows (Unaudited).

Settlement Activity

We manage certain integrated electronic payment services and programs and wealth management processes for our clients, and those services require us to hold and manage client cash balances used to fund their daily settlement activity. Settlement deposits represent funds we hold that were drawn from our clients to facilitate settlement activities and, as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, included $125.0 million and $139.3 million, respectively, of investments with original maturities of greater than 90 days. These investments are Level 1 and Level 2 type securities in the fair-value hierarchy. Settlement receivables represent amounts funded by us. Settlement payables consist of settlement deposits from clients, settlement payables to third parties, and outstanding checks related to our settlement activities for which the right of offset does not exist or we do not intend to exercise our right of offset. Our accounting policy for such outstanding checks is to include them in settlement payables on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets (Unaudited) and operating cash flows on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows (Unaudited).

Interest on the Term Loans A-4 is generally payable at LIBOR plus an applicable margin of up to 1.75% based upon the Company's corporate credit ratings and the ratings on the FIS Credit Agreement. As of September 30, 2015, the weighted average interest rate on the Term Loans A-4 was 1.45%.
(2)
Interest on the Revolving Loan is generally payable at LIBOR plus an applicable margin of up to 1.75% plus an unused commitment fee of up to 0.25%, each based upon the Company's corporate credit ratings and the ratings on the FIS Credit Agreement. As of September 30, 2015, the applicable margin on the Revolving Loan, excluding facility fees and unused commitment fees, was 1.25%.

FIS is a party to a syndicated credit agreement (the "FIS Credit Agreement"), which as of September 30, 2015, provided total committed capital of $4,300.0 million comprised of: (1) a revolving credit facility in an aggregate maximum principal amount of $3,000.0 million maturing on December 18, 2019 (the "Revolving Loan"); and (2) term loans of $1,300.0 million maturing on March 30, 2017 (the "Term Loans A-4"). As of September 30, 2015, the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Loan was $705.0 million, with $2,294.2 million of borrowing capacity remaining thereunder (net of $0.8 million in outstanding letters of credit issued under the Revolving Loan).

The obligations of FIS under the FIS Credit Agreement and under all of its outstanding senior notes rank equal in priority and are unsecured. The FIS Credit Agreement and the senior notes remain subject to customary covenants, including, among others, limitations on the payment of dividends by FIS, and events of default.
As disclosed in Note 11 - Acquisitions, FIS announced a definitive agreement to acquire SunGard on August 12, 2015. Concurrent with the execution of this acquisition agreement, the Company secured $6.9 billion of committed bridge financing to ensure our ability to fund the cash requirements related to the acquisition. The bridge commitments were terminated in October following the (a) amendment of the FIS Credit Agreement to modify certain covenants; (b) the issuance of a new $1.5 billion unsecured term loan credit agreement to be funded upon completion of the acquisition; and (c) the issuance of $4.5 billion of senior unsecured fixed rate notes (see Note 12 - Subsequent Events). The new term loan will bear interest at a floating rate and will mature on the third anniversary of the initial funding date. The loans under this credit agreement will not be subject to mandatory prepayment and voluntary prepayments will be permitted at any time without fee and subject to minimum dollar requirements. The new term loan will rank equally with the Company's other unsecured debt, and includes covenants and events of default consistent with the FIS Credit Agreement. The Company incurred and expensed approximately $17.0 million in the third quarter in connection with securing the financing. Additional fees of $2.6 million were capitalized as debt issuance costs.
The following table summarizes the mandatory annual principal payments pursuant to the FIS Credit Agreement and the senior notes' indentures as of September 30, 2015 (in millions). There are no mandatory principal payments on the Revolving Loan and any balance outstanding on the Revolving Loan will be due and payable at its scheduled maturity date. See also Note 12 - Subsequent Events regarding new fixed-rate senior notes FIS issued in October 2015 as a source of funding for the pending SunGard acquisition:

Voluntary prepayment of the Term Loans A-4 is generally permitted at any time without fee upon proper notice and subject to a minimum dollar requirement. In addition to scheduled principal payments, the Term Loans are (with certain exceptions) subject to mandatory prepayment upon the occurrence of certain events.

FIS may redeem some or all of the 2022 Notes on or before May 14, 2020 at a specified premium to par, and thereafter at par as outlined in the indenture agreement. FIS may also redeem the 2017 Notes, 2018 Notes, 2023 Notes and 2024 Notes at its option in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the greater of 100% of the principal amount to be redeemed and a make-whole amount calculated as described in the related indenture in each case plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of redemption; provided no make-whole amount will be paid for redemptions of the 2023 Notes and 2024 Notes during the three months prior to their maturity.

Debt issuance costs of $37.9 million, net of accumulated amortization, remain capitalized as of September 30, 2015, related to all of the above outstanding debt.

The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt is estimated to be approximately $38.7 million lower than the carrying value as of September 30, 2015. This estimate is based on quoted prices of our senior notes and trades of our other debt in close proximity to September 30, 2015, which are considered Level 2-type measurements. This estimate is subjective in nature and involves uncertainties and significant judgment in the interpretation of current market data. Therefore, the values presented are not necessarily indicative of amounts the Company could realize or settle currently.

As of September 30, 2015, we have entered into the following interest rate swap transaction converting a portion of the interest rate exposure on our Term and Revolving Loans from variable to fixed (in millions):

We have designated the interest rate swap as a cash flow hedge and, as such, it is carried on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets (Unaudited) at fair value with changes in fair value included in other comprehensive earnings, net of tax.

Our existing cash flow hedge is highly effective and there was no impact on earnings due to hedge ineffectiveness. It is our practice to execute such instruments with credit-worthy banks at the time of execution and not to enter into derivative financial instruments for speculative purposes. As of September 30, 2015, we believe that our interest rate swap counterparty will be able to fulfill its obligations under our agreement, and we believe that the forecasted transactions remain probable of occurring.

In September 2015 in contemplation of issuing long-term financing for the SunGard acquisition (see Note 12 - Subsequent Events), the Company entered into treasury lock hedges with a total notional amount of $1.0 billion reducing the risk of changes in the benchmark index component of the 10-year treasury yield. The Company designated these derivatives as cash flow hedges and they are reflected at fair value on the consolidated balance sheet, with the related losses through September 30, 2015 of $12.8 million deferred as a component of accumulated other comprehensive earnings. On October 13, 2015, in

conjunction with the pricing of the $4.5 billion senior notes, the Company terminated these treasury lock contracts for a cash settlement payment of $15.9 million, which will be amortized as an adjustment to interest expense over the ten years in which the related interest payments that were hedged are recognized in income.

(8) Commitments and Contingencies
Litigation
     In the ordinary course of business, the Company is involved in various pending and threatened litigation matters related to operations, some of which include claims for punitive or exemplary damages. The Company believes no actions, other than the matters listed below, depart from customary litigation incidental to its business. As background to the disclosure below, please note the following:

These matters raise difficult and complicated factual and legal issues and are subject to many uncertainties and complexities.

The Company reviews all of its litigation on an on-going basis and follows the authoritative provisions for accounting for contingencies when making accrual and disclosure decisions. A liability must be accrued if (a) it is probable that a liability has been incurred and (b) the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. If one of these criteria has not been met, disclosure is required when there is at least a reasonable possibility that a material loss may be incurred. When assessing reasonably possible and probable outcomes, the Company bases decisions on the assessment of the ultimate outcome following all appeals. Legal fees associated with defending litigation matters are expensed as incurred.

   CheckFree Corporation and CashEdge, Inc. v. Metavante Corporation and Fidelity National Information Services, Inc.

On January 5, 2012, CheckFree Corporation and CashEdge, Inc., subsidiaries of Fiserv, Inc. (collectively, the "Plaintiffs") filed a patent infringement action against the Company and its subsidiary, Metavante Corporation (collectively the "Defendants") in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division. Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants infringe the patents at issue by providing customers financial and payment solutions that process payment instructions, provide electronic biller notifications, and/or process account-to-account funds transfer transactions and have requested financial damages and injunctive relief. Defendants filed their Answer and Counterclaims to Plaintiffs' complaint for patent infringement denying the claims of patent infringement and asserting defenses, including non-infringement and invalidity. Defendants filed counterclaims asserting patent infringement of three patents and adding Fiserv, Inc. as a Counter Defendant. Plaintiffs and Counter Defendant Fiserv, Inc., filed their Answer to Defendants' counterclaims denying the claims of patent infringement and asserting defenses, including non-infringement and invalidity.  On June 24, 2013, Defendants filed for covered business method ("CBM") post-grant reviews of the validity of the Plaintiff's asserted patents at the US Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO").  On June 25, 2013, Defendants filed a Motion to Stay the case pending the outcome of the CBM post-grant reviews.  On December 23, 2013, the USPTO instituted Defendants' CBM Petitions, thereby agreeing to review the validity of Plaintiff's patents. On January 17, 2014, the Court granted Defendants' Motion to Stay the litigation pending the outcome of the CBM review proceedings, and the lawsuit in Florida continues to be stayed. On December 22, 2014, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") issued final written decisions on Defendants' CBM Petition holding that all claims of the Plaintiffs' four patents are unpatentable.  Plaintiffs have appealed the PTAB’s final written decisions to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit with regard to two of the four invalidated patents. On July 8, 2015, Plaintiffs filed appeal briefs for the remaining two cases, and on October 19, 2015 the Company and the USPTO filed their responsive briefs. An estimate of a possible loss or range of possible loss, if any, for this action cannot be made at this time.

DataTreasury Corporation v. Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. et. al.

On May 28, 2013, DataTreasury Corporation (the “Plaintiff”) filed a patent infringement lawsuit against the Company and multiple banks in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division.  Plaintiff alleges that the Company infringes the patents at issue by making, using, selling or offering to sell systems and methods for image-based check processing. The Complaint seeks damages, injunctive relief and attorneys' fees for the alleged infringement of two patents.  On October 25, 2013, the Company filed for CBM post-grant reviews of the validity of the Plaintiff's asserted patents at the USPTO.  The Company filed a Motion to Stay the case pending the outcome of the CBM post-grant reviews. On April 29, 2014, the USPTO instituted the Company's two CBM petitions. On August 14, 2014, the Court granted the Company's Motion to Stay the litigation pending the outcome of the CBM review proceedings. On April 29, 2015, the PTAB issued final written

13

AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)


decisions on the Company’s two CBM petitions holding that all claims of the Plaintiff’s two patents are unpatentable. Plaintiff's request for rehearing of these decisions has been denied by PTAB. On August 27, 2015, the Plaintiff filed a notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit of the USPTO’s Final Written Decisions and the Company will respond to the Plaintiff/Appellant’s brief in due course once filed. An estimate of a possible loss or range of possible loss, if any, for this action cannot be made at this time.

Indemnifications and Warranties

The Company generally indemnifies its customers, subject to certain limitations and exceptions, against damages and costs resulting from claims of patent, copyright, or trademark infringement associated solely with its customers' use of the Company's software applications or services. Historically, the Company has not made any material payments under such indemnifications, but continues to monitor the conditions that are subject to the indemnifications to identify whether it is probable that a loss has occurred, and would recognize any such losses when they are estimable. In addition, the Company warrants to customers that its software operates substantially in accordance with the software specifications. Historically, no material costs have been incurred related to software warranties and no accruals for warranty costs have been made.

(9) Share Repurchase Program

On January 29, 2014 our Board of Directors approved a plan authorizing repurchases of up to $2.0 billion of our outstanding common stock in the open market at prevailing market prices or in privately negotiated transactions through December 31, 2017. This share repurchase authorization replaced any existing share repurchase authorization plan. Approximately $1,224.1 million of plan capacity remained available for repurchase as of September 30, 2015.

Therefore, beginning in the first quarter of 2015, the Company reports its financial performance based on the three reportable segments described below.
Summarized financial information for the Company’s segments is shown in the following tables.

Integrated Financial Solutions ("IFS")

The IFS segment is focused on serving the North American regional and community bank market for transaction and account processing, payment solutions, channel solutions, digital channels, risk and compliance solutions, and services, capitalizing on the continuing trend to outsource these solutions. IFS’ primary software applications function as the underlying infrastructure of a financial institution's processing environment. These applications include core bank processing software, which banks use to maintain the primary records of their customer accounts, and complementary applications and services that interact directly with the core processing applications. Clients in this segment include regional and community banks, credit unions, commercial lenders, independent community and savings institutions as well as government institutions, merchants and other commercial organizations. This market is primarily served through integrated solutions delivered from leveraged platforms and characterized by multi-year processing contracts that generate highly recurring revenues.

Global Financial Solutions ("GFS")

The GFS segment is focused on serving the largest financial institutions around the globe with banking and payments solutions, consulting and transformation services. GFS clients include the largest global financial institutions, including those headquartered in the United States, as well as all international financial institutions we serve as clients in more than 130 countries around the world. These institutions face unique business and regulatory challenges and account for the majority of financial institution information technology spend globally. The purchasing patterns of GFS clients vary from those of IFS clients who typically purchase solutions on an outsourced basis. GFS clients purchase our solutions and services in various ways including licensing and managing technology “in-house”, using consulting and third party service providers as well as fully outsourced end-to-end solutions. We have long established relationships with many of these financial institutions that generate significant recurring revenue and reoccurring service revenue. This segment also includes the Company's consolidated Brazilian Venture (Note 2).

Clients in Brazil, the United Kingdom, France and Germany accounted for the majority of the revenues from clients based outside of North America for all periods presented. Included in this segment are long-term assets, excluding goodwill and other intangible assets, located outside of the United States totaling $359.4 million and $364.3 million as of September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. These assets are predominantly located in Brazil, India, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Corporate and Other

The Corporate and Other segment consists of corporate overhead and costs of leveraged functions that are not allocated to operating segments. These costs relate to marketing, corporate finance and accounting, human resources, legal, and amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and other costs that are not considered when management evaluates revenue generating segment performance, such as acquisition integration and severance costs. The composition of our Corporate and Other segment changed with the new segment presentation in 2015; specifically, costs such as sales, finance, human resources, risk and information security and other administrative support functions that are directly attributable to IFS or GFS are recorded to those reportable segments.

Certain planned integration expenses related to our Clear2Pay acquisition (Note 11) have been recorded in this segment.

(11) Acquisitions

Pending Acquisition of SunGard

On August 12, 2015, FIS and certain of its wholly owned subsidiaries entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”)  with SunGard and SunGard Capital Corp. II (collectively “SunGard”) pursuant to which, through a series of mergers, SunGard will be merged into wholly owned subsidiaries of FIS (collectively the "Mergers"). SunGard is one of the world’s leading financial software companies. Its solutions automate a wide range of complex business processes across the financial services industry, including those associated with trading, securities operations, administering investment portfolios, accounting for investment assets, and managing risk and compliance requirements. FIS and SunGard have complementary technology solutions and services encompassing retail and corporate banking, payments, risk management, asset solutions and insurance. The combined company will have more than 55,000 employees and support thousands of clients worldwide after the transaction is consummated.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, FIS will acquire 100 percent of the equity of SunGard. At the closing of the Mergers, SunGard shareholders will receive an aggregate of 44.7 million shares of common stock of FIS and $2.3 billion in cash, subject to certain adjustments and less the number of FIS shares representing unvested RSUs of SunGard that will be converted into RSUs of FIS at the closing. In connection with the Mergers, FIS will also assume, repay or refinance all of SunGard's outstanding debt, totaling approximately $4.7 billion (See Note 12 - Subsequent Events). The acquisition is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including approval by the stockholders of SunGard. FIS expects to consummate the acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2015.
   
Other Acquisitions

We completed a number of acquisitions in 2015 and 2014 that were not significant, individually or in the aggregate. Among these were Clear2Pay NV ("Clear2Pay") and Reliance Financial Corporation ("Reliance").

Clear2Pay

On September 2, 2014, FIS signed a definitive agreement to acquire Brussels-based Clear2Pay. We completed the acquisition on October 1, 2014, paying $462.0 million, net of acquired cash for 100 percent ownership interest. The addition of Clear2Pay expanded FIS’ global payments capabilities and enhances our ability to deliver differentiated enterprise payments solutions.

Reliance

On May 5, 2014, FIS signed a definitive agreement to acquire Atlanta-based Reliance. We completed the acquisition on July 15, 2014, paying approximately $110.0 million to acquire 100 percent ownership interest. The resulting combination creates a full-service wealth management and retirement offering encompassing technology, full back-office operations outsourcing, and retirement trust and fiduciary services.

(12) Subsequent Events

As indicated in Note 11, under the Merger Agreement, FIS will pay total consideration of approximately $2.3 billion in cash and the issuance of approximately 44.7 million shares of FIS common stock, including shares underlying certain stock-based awards to be assumed. FIS also intends to repay all of SunGard’s outstanding bank debt, totaling approximately $2.5 billion as of June 30, 2015, and all of SunGard’s outstanding senior notes and senior subordinated notes, totaling approximately $2.2 billion as of such date.

In anticipation of the above cash requirements, on October 20, 2015, FIS completed the issuance and sale of an aggregate of $4.5 billion in principal amount of new senior notes, consisting of $750.0 million in aggregate principal amount of FIS’ 2.850% Senior Notes due 2018, $1.75 billion in aggregate principal amount of FIS’ 3.625% Senior Notes due 2020, $500.0 million in aggregate principal amount of FIS’ 4.500% Senior Notes due 2022 and $1.5 billion in aggregate principal amount of FIS’ 5.000% Senior Notes due 2025. If we do not consummate the SunGard acquisition on or prior to June 30, 2016, each series of these Senior Notes (other than the 2025 Senior Notes) will be required to be redeemed in whole at 101% of the aggregate principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The 2025 Notes will not be subject to the special mandatory redemption and

AND SUBSIDIARIES

will remain outstanding even if the acquisition is not consummated. The new senior notes are unsecured and contain covenants and events of default that are customary for obligations of this type.

 Overview

FIS is a global leader in banking and payments technology as well as consulting and outsourcing solutions. With a long history deeply rooted in the financial services sector, FIS serves more than 14,000 institutions in over 130 countries. Headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, FIS employs approximately 42,000 people worldwide and holds leadership positions in payment processing and banking solutions, providing software, services and outsourcing of the technology that drives financial institutions. We have grown organically as well as through acquisitions, which have contributed applications and service expansion capabilities that complement or enhance our existing offerings and diversify our revenues by market, geography and type of service. Through our Capco brand, we deliver globally a wide range of information technology consulting and transformational services to financial institutions. FIS is a member of the Fortune 500 U.S. and of Standard and Poor's (S&P) 500® Index.

On August 12, 2015, FIS entered into a Merger Agreement to acquire Wayne, Pennsylvania-based SunGard. SunGard is one of the world’s leading financial software companies, with approximately $2.8 billion in revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014. Its solutions automate a wide range of complex business processes across the financial services industry, including those associated with trading, securities operations, administering investment portfolios, accounting for investment assets, and managing risk and compliance requirements. FIS and SunGard have complementary technology solutions and services encompassing retail and corporate banking, payments, risk management, asset solutions and insurance. The combined company will have more than 55,000 employees and support thousands of clients worldwide upon the consummation of the Mergers. The acquisition is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including approval by the stockholders of SunGard. FIS expects to consummate the Mergers in the fourth quarter of 2015.

In March 2015, we finalized a reorganization and began streamlining our global operations in response to market conditions and to more efficiently meet the demand of specific client needs. As a result of these changes, the Company now reports its financial performance based on three reportable segments: Integrated Financial Solutions, Global Financial Solutions and Corporate and Other. A description of these segments is included in Note 10 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited). Revenues by segment and the results of operations of our segments are discussed below in Segment Results of Operations.
Business Trends and Conditions

Our revenue is primarily derived from a combination of recurring technology and processing services, consulting and professional services and software license fees. The majority of our revenue has historically been recurring, provided under multi-year contracts that contribute relative stability to our revenue stream. These services, in general, are considered critical to our clients' operations. A significant portion of these recurring revenues is derived from transaction processing fees that fluctuate with the level of deposit accounts and card transactions, among other variable measures, associated with consumer and commercial activity. Consulting and professional services revenues are typically non-recurring, and sales of software licenses are less predictable, a portion of which can be regarded as discretionary spending by our clients. In the second half of 2015, we are experiencing the macroeconomic challenges of a slowing in the global economy and how that trend affects our clients, predominantly in the amount they spend with us for professional services.

A continued trend in the financial services industry from which we are benefiting is the migration by many financial institutions to outsourced integrated technology solutions to improve their profitability and rapidly address regulatory challenges. As a provider of outsourcing solutions, we benefit from multi-year recurring revenue streams, which help moderate the effects of year-to-year economic changes on our results of operations. We believe our integrated solutions and outsourced services are targeted and well positioned to address this outsourcing trend across the markets we serve.

Table of Contents


The alignment of resources in our Global Financial Solutions segment resulted in severance costs of $44.6 million in the first quarter of 2015. The alignment activities, which are continuing, relate primarily to Europe, and are a combination of optimizing on-shore and off-shore resources as well as the removal of overlapping management resources. Additional severance charges were incurred in the third quarter and are included in the $35.6 million of integration activities addressed under the Selling, General and Administrative Expenses caption of Consolidated Results of Operations. We believe that global financial institutions are a higher-growth market where we generate lower margins due to the high mix of professional services, including consulting, information technology integration and business process outsourcing. In making these organizational adjustments, we believe we are positioned to expand margins over time in this segment as we continue to (1) gain scale, leveraging our extensive, existing intellectual property; (2) develop and enhance targeted solutions; and (3) rationalize our operations.
In addition to the severance costs incurred to date pertaining to the alignment activities addressed above, we expect that additional severance costs will continue to be incurred in connection with the SunGard integration.
Consumer preference continues to shift from traditional branch banking services to faster, on-demand banking solutions and our clients seek to provide a single, integrated banking experience through their branch, mobile, internet and voice-banking channels. We are focused on enabling our clients to deliver this experience to their customers through our integrated solutions and services. We continue to innovate and invest in these integrated solutions and services to assist clients as they address this market demand.
We continue to see demand for innovative solutions in the payments market that will deliver faster, more convenient payment solutions in mobile channels, internet applications and cards. We believe mobile payments will grow and partially replace existing payment tender volumes over time as consumers and merchants embrace the convenience, incremental services and benefits. Mobile payment volume is growing significantly but does not yet represent a meaningful amount of the payments market. Additionally, new formidable non-traditional payments competitors, such as Apple, PayPal, and large merchants, are investing in and innovating mobile payment technologies to address the emerging market opportunity, and it is unclear the extent to which particular technologies or services will succeed. We believe the growth of mobile payments continues to present both an opportunity and a risk to us as the market develops. Although we cannot predict which mobile payment technologies or solutions will be successful, we cautiously believe our client relationships, payments infrastructure and experience, adapted solutions and emerging solutions are well positioned to maintain or grow our clients' existing payment volumes, which is our focus.
High profile North American merchant payment card information security breaches have pushed the payment card industry towards EMV integrated circuit cards as financial institutions, card networks and merchants seek to improve information security and reduce fraud costs. We have invested in our card management solutions and card manufacturing and processing capabilities to accommodate EMV integrated circuit cards so we can guide our clients through this anticipated technology transition and grow our card-driven businesses. We believe the trend to migrate to EMV cards will continue and we continue to invest to address market demand.

The use of checks continues to decline as a percentage of total payments, which negatively impacts our check warranty and item-processing businesses, and we expect this trend to continue. In 2014 and through the first nine months of 2015, we observed a modest slowdown in our check volume decline and to date have been able to successfully mitigate the majority of the impacts of this decline through cost and fraud efficiency actions and new market solutions, which remain our continued focus.
We anticipate consolidation within the banking industry will continue, primarily in the form of merger and acquisition activity, which we believe as a whole is detrimental to our business. However, consolidation resulting from specific merger and acquisition transactions may be beneficial or detrimental to our business. When consolidations of financial institutions occur, merger partners often operate systems licensed from competing service providers. The newly formed entity generally makes a determination to migrate its core and payments systems to a single platform. When a financial institution processing client is involved in a consolidation, we may benefit by their expanding the use of our services if such services are chosen to survive the consolidation and support the newly combined entity. Conversely, we may lose market share if we are providing services to both entities, or if a client of ours is involved in a consolidation and our services are not chosen to survive the consolidation and support the newly combined entity. It is also possible that larger financial institutions resulting from consolidation may have greater leverage in negotiating terms or could decide to perform in-house some or all of the services that we currently provide or could provide. We seek to mitigate the risks of consolidations by offering other competitive services to take advantage of

21

Table of Contents

specific opportunities at the surviving company. Through the first nine months of 2015, we have experienced lower consolidation activity and resulting termination fees compared to the same periods in the prior two years.

Notwithstanding challenging global economic conditions, our international business continued to experience growth across all major regions, including Europe and Asia on a constant currency basis during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. We expect this trend to continue as the result of large-scale outsourcing clients and the opportunities we see for similar arrangements.  Demand for our solutions will also be driven in developing countries by government-led financial inclusion policies aimed to reduce the unbanked population and by growth in the middle classes in these markets driving the need for more sophisticated banking solutions. The majority of our European revenue is generated by clients in the United Kingdom, France and Germany. In the first nine months of 2015, we have experienced adverse currency impacts in our international businesses as a consequence of a relative strengthening U.S. dollar. For the remainder of 2015, we expect unfavorable foreign currency impact compared to the comparable prior year periods to continue, but we cannot estimate with reasonable certainty the magnitude of this adverse currency impact trend.

Globally, attacks on information technology systems continue to grow in frequency, complexity and sophistication. This is a trend we expect to continue. Such attacks have become a point of focus for individuals, businesses and governmental entities. The objectives of these attacks include, among other things, gaining unauthorized access to systems to facilitate financial fraud, disrupt operations, cause denial of service events, corrupt data, and steal non-public information. These circumstances present both a threat and an opportunity for FIS. As part of our business, we electronically receive, process, store and transmit a wide range of confidential information, including sensitive customer information and personal consumer data. We also operate payment, cash access and prepaid card systems.

FIS remains focused on making strategic investments in information security to protect our clients and our information systems. This includes both capital expenditures and operating expense on hardware, software, personnel and consulting services. We also participate in industry and governmental initiatives to improve information security for our clients. Through the expertise we have gained with this ongoing focus and involvement, we have developed fraud, security, risk management and compliance solutions to target this growth opportunity in the financial services industry.
  
Critical Accounting Policies

There have been no significant changes to our critical accounting policies as disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

 Processing and Services Revenues

Processing and services revenues totaled $1,578.8 million and $1,605.3 million during the three-month periods and $4,720.4 million and $4,724.7 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Processing and services revenues for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 included approximately $71.2 million and $180.0 million, respectively of unfavorable foreign currency impact primarily resulting from a stronger U.S. Dollar versus the Brazilian Real. Excluding the unfavorable foreign currency impact, revenue increases for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to 2014 were primarily attributable to incremental revenues from the acquisitions of Clear2Pay and Reliance, as well as card production activities associated with the roll-out of EMV cards

Table of Contents

across the industry, growth in digital solutions, core banking, payments and transaction processing volumes. The increase for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 period was partially offset by a reduction in termination fees of approximately $34.9 million.

Cost of Revenues and Gross Profit

Cost of revenues totaled $1,021.3 million and $1,074.5 million during the three-month periods and $3,160.6 million and $3,211.4 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, resulting in gross profit of $557.5 million and $530.8 million during the three-month periods and $1,559.8 million and $1,513.3 million during the nine-month periods, respectively. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues was 35.3% and 33.1% during the three-month periods and 33.0% and 32.0% during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The changes in gross profit during the 2015 periods as compared to 2014 primarily resulted from the revenue variances noted above and reductions in variable costs where performance did not meet expectations. The increases in gross profit percentage during the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the 2014 periods were also impacted by lower acquired intangible amortization expense during 2015 and higher margins in our GFS segment resulting from expense management initiatives.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $219.2 million and $207.1 million during the three-month periods and $719.4 million and $593.8 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The year-over-year increase for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 as compared to 2014 primarily resulted from transaction and other costs, including integration activities relating to acquisitions of $35.6 million and $59.2 million for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015, respectively, and other incremental expenses of acquired companies, partially offset by reductions in variable costs where performance did not meet expectations. The nine-month period ended September 30, 2015 also included severance costs of $44.6 million incurred in the first quarter in conjunction with the reorganization and streamlining of operations in our GFS segment.

Operating Income

Operating income totaled $338.3 million and $323.7 million during the three-month periods and $840.4 million and $919.5 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Operating income as a percentage of revenue (“operating margin”) was 21.4% and 20.2% during the three-month periods and 17.8% and 19.5% during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The changes in operating income for the three-month and nine-month periods of 2015 as compared to 2014 resulted from the variances addressed above. The increase in operating margin for the three month period of 2015 as compared to 2014 resulted from the restructuring activities taken earlier in the year in Europe as a result of our reorganization. The decrease in operating margin for the nine month period of 2015 as compared to 2014 resulted from the lower termination fees year-over-year, which have virtually no associated costs, as well as the other variances addressed above.
 
Total Other Income (Expense), Net

Total other income (expense), net was $(56.8) million and $(92.5) million during the three-month periods and $20.7 million and $(177.2) million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Other income (expense) net for the three and nine month periods of 2015 includes financing costs of $17.0 million relating to the planned SunGard acquisition. During the second quarter of 2015, we sold certain assets associated with our gaming industry check warranty business, resulting in proceeds of $237.5 million and a pre-tax gain of $139.4 million, which is included in Other income (expense), net for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Other income (expense) net for the three- and nine-month periods of 2014 includes a loss of $16.2 million on a foreign currency forward contract associated with the Euro-based purchase price for our Clear2Pay acquisition, the write-off of certain previously capitalized debt issuance costs of $5.9 million and the payment of a $29.5 million bond premium associated with the early redemption of certain debt. Interest expense decreased $2.1 million and $11.9 million during the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 as compared to 2014 primarily due to lower borrowing rates as the result of the debt refinancing activity undertaken during 2014.

Provision for Income Taxes

Income tax expense from continuing operations totaled $100.0 million and $72.1 million during the three-month periods and $314.2 million and $233.7 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, resulting in effective tax rates from continuing operations of 36% and 31% for the three-month periods and 36% and 31% for the nine-

24

Table of Contents

month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The effective tax rate increases for the 2015 periods are attributable to a $90.1 million write-off of goodwill with no tax basis in connection with the sale of our gaming industry check warranty business, resulting in a book gain on sale lower than the tax gain. Another contributor to the effective rate differential was a discrete item that resulted in a lower tax rate for the 2014 period.

Earnings (Loss) from Discontinued Operations

During the 2015 and 2014 periods, certain operations are classified as discontinued as discussed more fully in Note 4 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) and as summarized in the following tables. Reporting for discontinued operations classifies revenues and expenses as one line item, net of tax, in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Unaudited).

Earnings from Continuing Operations, Net of Tax, Attributable to FIS Common Stockholders

Earnings from continuing operations, net of tax, attributable to FIS common stockholders totaled $176.9 million and $151.7 million resulting in earnings per diluted share of $0.62 and $0.53 for the three-month periods and $533.3 million and $488.1 million resulting in earnings per diluted share of $1.87 and $1.69 for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, reflecting the variances described above and the impacts of our share repurchase program.

Processing and services revenues for IFS totaled $970.7 million and $963.6 million during the three-months and $2,908.5 million and $2,869.5 million during the nine-months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Revenues for IFS for the three months ended September 30, 2015 increased 0.7% compared to the 2014 period, primarily driven by card production activities associated with the roll-out of EMV cards across the industry, a large re-issuance of magnetic stripe cards for a retail customer, growth in digital and wealth management solutions and new product sales, offset by the loss of a major customer in the prior year period, the divestiture of our gaming business in the second quarter of 2015 and a vendor and related contractual change in our loyalty business in late 2014 that resulted in net revenue reporting. The overall segment increase of $39.0 million during the 2015 nine-month period as compared to 2014 was primarily attributable to incremental revenues from our 2014 acquisition of Reliance (Note 11), card production activities and growth in digital solutions, partially offset by the net reporting resulting from the change in vendor and related contractual responsibilities in our loyalty business and the impact of recent divestitures.
Operating income for IFS totaled $348.9 million and $331.5 million during the three-month periods and $996.3 million and $977.4 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Operating margin was 35.9% and 34.4% during the three-month periods and 34.3% and 34.1% during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The increases in operating income for IFS during the 2015 periods compared to the 2014 periods primarily resulted from the revenue variances noted above and reductions in variable costs where performance did not meet expectations. The increase in operating margin during the three-month period ended September 30, 2015 compared to the 2014 period primarily resulted from the variable cost reductions and a more favorable revenue mix, including higher termination fees.

Processing and services revenues for GFS totaled $609.1 million and $642.2 million during the three-month periods and $1,814.9 million and $1,856.3 million during the nine-months periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 included approximately $70.9 million and $178.7 million, respectively of unfavorable foreign currency impact primarily resulting from a stronger U.S. Dollar versus the Brazilian Real. The third quarter of 2015 also included lower professional services. Excluding the items noted above, revenue increases were primarily attributable to incremental revenues from the acquisition of Clear2Pay (Note 11), our expanding presence in India, including core banking and payments, growth in Europe primarily in core banking and payment products sales and growth in Latin America from transaction volumes, expanded collection services and number of cards issued.

Operating income for GFS totaled $116.9 million and $101.8 million during the three-month periods and $245.3 million and $254.8 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Operating margin was 19.2% and 15.9% during the three-month periods and 13.5% and 13.7% during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The increases in operating income and operating margin during the 2015 three-month period as compared to the 2014 period primarily resulted from the restructuring activities taken earlier in the year in Europe as a result of our reorganization, reductions in variable costs where performance did not meet expectations, and the addition of a new software license sale in the quarter, partially offset by the impact of unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates. The decreases in operating income and operating margin during the 2015 nine-month period as compared to the 2014 period

Table of Contents

primarily resulted from lower termination fees year-over-year, which have virtually no associated costs, and the impact of unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates, partially offset by the expense reductions noted for the quarter.

Corporate and Other

The Corporate and Other segment results consist of selling, general and administrative expenses and depreciation and intangible asset amortization not otherwise allocated to the reportable segments. Corporate and Other expenses were $127.5 million and $109.6 million during the three-month periods and $401.2 million and $312.7 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The year-over-year increase for the three-month and nine-month periods ended 2015 as compared to 2014 primarily resulted from transaction and other costs, including integration activities relating to acquisitions of $35.6 million and $59.2 million, respectively, partially offset by reductions in variable costs where performance did not meet expectations. The nine-month period ended September 30, 2015 also included severance costs of $44.6 million incurred in the first quarter in conjunction with the reorganization and streamlining of operations in our GFS segment.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash Requirements

Our ongoing cash requirements include operating expenses, income taxes, mandatory debt service payments, capital expenditures, stockholder dividends, working capital and timing differences in settlement-related assets and liabilities, and may include discretionary debt service, share repurchases, and business acquisitions. Our cash requirements also include payments for Capco's contingent consideration earn-out and for labor claims related to FIS' former item processing and remittance operations in Brazil (see Note 4 in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)). Our principal sources of funds are cash generated by operations and borrowings, including the capacity under our Revolving Loan described in Note 7 in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited).
As of September 30, 2015, we had cash and cash equivalents of $441.5 million and debt of $4,970.4 million, including the current portion. Of the $441.5 million cash and cash equivalents, approximately $260.2 million is held by our foreign entities and would generally be subject to U.S. income taxation upon repatriation to the U.S. The majority of our domestic cash and cash equivalents represents net deposits-in-transit at the balance sheet dates and relates to daily settlement activity. We expect that cash and cash equivalents plus cash flows from operations over the next twelve months will be sufficient to fund our operating cash requirements, capital expenditures and mandatory debt service.
See also Note 7 - Long-Term Debt and Note 12 - Subsequent Events in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) for a discussion of financing agreements entered into and the sale of additional senior notes to fund the SunGard acquisition.
We currently expect to continue to pay quarterly dividends, which we have increased over recent years. However, the amount, declaration and payment of future dividends is at the discretion of the Board of Directors and depends on, among other things, our investment opportunities, results of operations, financial condition, cash requirements, future prospects, and other factors that may be considered relevant by our Board of Directors, including legal and contractual restrictions. Additionally, the payment of cash dividends may be limited by covenants in certain debt agreements. A regular quarterly dividend of $0.26 per common share was paid on September 30, 2015 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 16, 2015.
Cash Flows from Operations
Cash flows from operations were $697.5 million and $687.1 million during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Cash flows from operations was $10.4 million higher in the 2015 period primarily due to working capital changes, partially offset by lower net earnings after exclusion of the gain on sale of assets, which is an investing activity.
Capital Expenditures and Other Investing Activities
The proceeds from sale of assets in the 2015 period is primarily for the sale of certain assets associated with our gaming industry check warranty business.
Our principal capital expenditures are for computer software (purchased and internally developed) and additions to property and equipment. We invested $305.7 million and $272.6 million in capital expenditures (excluding capital leases)

27

Table of Contents

during the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. We expect capital expenditures to slightly exceed our stated goal of 5.0-6.0% of 2015 revenue.
Financing

For information regarding the Company's long-term debt and financing activity, see Notes 7 and 12 in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited). We spent $300.4 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $475.5 million in the comparable 2014 period for share repurchases, resulting in lower use of cash. Coupled with higher share prices, this resulted in a 4.2 million reduction in shares repurchased in the 2015 period versus 2014.
  
Contractual Obligations

There were no material changes in our contractual obligations during the first nine months of 2015 in comparison to the table included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed on February 27, 2015, except as disclosed in Notes 7 and 12 in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited).
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Recent Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted
       
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” (“ASU
2014-09”). ASU 2014-09 amends substantially all authoritative literature for revenue recognition, including industry-specific
requirements, and converges the guidance under this topic with that of the International Financial Reporting Standards. The
ASU implements a five-step process for customer contract revenue recognition that focuses on transfer of control, as opposed
to transfer of risk and rewards. The amendment also requires enhanced disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and
uncertainty of revenues and cash flows from contracts with customers. Other provisions include ensuring the time value of
money is considered in the transaction price and allowing estimates of variable consideration to be recognized before
contingencies are resolved in certain circumstances. The effective date to the amendments was postponed to reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption allowed for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. Entities can transition to the standard either with retrospective application to the earlier years presented in their financial statements or with a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. We are currently assessing the impact the adoption of ASU 2014-09 will have on our financial position and results of operations as well as the transition method we expect to employ.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure About Market Risks
Market Risk
We are exposed to market risks primarily from changes in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates. We use certain derivative financial instruments, including interest rate swaps and foreign currency forward contracts, to manage interest rate and foreign currency risk. We do not use derivatives for trading purposes, to generate income or to engage in speculative activity.
Interest Rate Risk
In addition to existing cash balances and cash provided by operating activities, we use fixed rate and variable rate debt to finance our operations. We are exposed to interest rate risk on these debt obligations and related interest rate swaps.
The senior notes as described in Note 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) represent substantially all of our fixed-rate long-term debt obligations as of September 30, 2015. The carrying value of the notes was $2,950.0 million as of September 30, 2015. The fair value of the senior notes was approximately $2,910.1 million as of September 30, 2015. The potential reduction in fair value of the senior notes from a hypothetical 10 percent increase in market interest rates would not be material to the overall fair value of the debt.

Our floating rate long-term debt obligations principally relate to borrowings under the FIS Credit Agreement (as defined in Note 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)). An increase of 100 basis points in the LIBOR rate would increase our annual debt service under the FIS Credit Agreement, after we include the impact of our interest rate swaps,

28

Table of Contents

by $16.1 million (based on principal amounts outstanding as of September 30, 2015). We performed the foregoing sensitivity analysis based on the principal amount of our floating rate debt as of September 30, 2015, less the principal amount of such debt that was then subject to an interest rate swap converting such debt into fixed rate debt. This sensitivity analysis is based solely on the principal amount of such debt as of September 30, 2015, and does not take into account any changes that occurred in the prior 12 months or that may take place in the next 12 months in the amount of our outstanding debt or in the notional amount of outstanding interest rate swaps in respect of our debt. Further, in this sensitivity analysis, the change in interest rates is assumed to be applicable for an entire year. For comparison purposes, based on principal amounts of floating rate debt outstanding as of September 30, 2014, and calculated in the same manner as set forth above, an increase of 100 basis points in the LIBOR rate would have increased our annual interest expense, after we calculate the impact of our interest rate swaps, by
